Spring, Supermoon, Eclipse!

Today is the first day of spring, there is a supermoon tonight and there is also going to be a lunar eclipse. Wow what a big day! Of course where I am living, it is supposed to snow tonight. This is not an unusual occurrence for the first day of spring. Sometimes it seems like mother nature has a bit of a sense of humor since just a few days ago it was warmer than 60 degrees.

However, with the supermoon (meaning the moon is at its closest point to the earth while being a full moon) and a lunar eclipse to boot I just started thinking about it. I know that the moon can affect a persons mood and of course the emotional state can improve or worsen pain. So it would logically make sense that the moon would affect pain. I did happen to notice today that many people were acting more erratic today… maybe because of the moon or maybe it is just a weird coincidence.

I know weather affects pain and that is because the barometric pressure changes affect inflammation. This affect on inflammation can worsen or improve pain. This is very apparent where I live because it can be rainy, cloudy, snowy one hour or one day and the very next sunny and clear skies. This wreaks havoc on those with chronic pain and arthritis. I get to hear all about it when I am working with the elderly.

So now, I am going to pay more attention to how the moon cycles affect peoples pain. You may want to pay attention to different cycles of nature and see how it affects you and you may be surprised to see a correlation.
